Inspiration and Imagination
My parents had a framed print of Gainsborough's Blue Boy in the living room while I was growing up. It was always there. Not my favorite - but I stared at it and studied this piece for years. I think I can remember every brush stroke.
I was inspired...
I'm completely taken with the possibilities of pure painting.
Imagination is a must.
Here are two of the many attributes for an imaginative, creative painter:
- You are vivid and colorful. You have a sense of urgency.
- You find out things for yourself, not just what you have read or seen.
